Welsh sextet The Blackout have announced that they will be splitting up after one final tour in March next year.
The band formed in 2003 and have performed alongside the likes of My Chemical Romance, Limp Bizkit and Bring Me The Horizon. Their latest EP, ‘Wolves’, was funded by fans via a Kickstarter campaign, and will be the six-piece’s last release.
A statement posted on the band’s website this morning read that:
‘Unfortunately we have come to the conclusion we are unable to sustain this band anymore, and we feel the time is right to bring it to a close. This is the hardest decision we have ever had to make as a band, and although we do it with heavy hearts, we also do with our heads held high. We are all extremely proud of Wolves, and are eternally grateful to each and every one of you who helped it get made.’
The Blackout will play the following farewell shows in March 2015:
23 – Asylum, Birmingham
24 – KOKO, London
25 – Academy III, Manchester
26 – King Tut’s, Glasgow
28 – Leisure Centre, Merthyr Tydfil
Tickets go on sale Wednesday 3rd December. Listen to their sound below.
